At the recent Canalys forum held in Macau, Origin was chosen as the "Innovation and Transformation Partner of the Year" out of 1,000 similar businesses from all over the APAC region. The award was in recognition of Origin's acquisition of network and security company Optinet late 2015 (read more here).
By bringing together Origin's rich history in IT managed services with Optinet's pedigree of providing NZ's biggest corporations and government departments with specialised networking and security solutions, Origin has created innovative, market leading services, including a managed security service, tailored specifically for mid-market business needs.
On acceptance of the award, Michael Russell, CEO of Origin IT, said, ‘Since our acquisition of Optinet in 2015, we have transformed our security services business, winning more outsourced security contracts for mid-market customers, and we will be further developing managed security services to run alongside our MSP practice.’
